Pin #4 and #5 are a set, view #5 here.Friends are a collection of pins designed and made by ACV Studio from conversations and materials shared with Dale Hardiman from other creative friends from Tasmania and greater Australia.
The Friends pins are a reminder that although during COVID we have been physically separated, we are a supportive community of creative practitioners. The pins can be worn day-to-day, or during video calls as a symbol of sharing and community during isolation.
"Two rocks from Pipeclay Lagoon, a nearby source of the local clay that I process in the workshop to prepare my clay bodies for use in the woodfired kiln. Gathering material in situ allows time to wander and gather both source material and design ideas from that environment - colour, fracturing planes, and textures revealed all feed into the mix."
